Customer Andrew has been catching Redfin out of Rowville Lakes on 1.5” Pro Grubs and Damiki Monster Mikis fished on light jigheads. Casting around the reed edges with the plastics has been the go.
Lots of Redin are being caught in Sugarloaf Reservoir by customers. Most are fishing vibe-style lures like this Ecogear ZX35.
Craig fished the Howqua River last week, chasing some of the Trout. While the Trout were hard to tempt, he did catch some large Carp to 2kg on Chunky Cheese Powerbait. He noticed late in the afternoon that the Trout were rising to take small White Moth off the surface.
Staff member Dylan has still been chasing Yellowbelly around the local lakes and dams, with a few smaller fish up around 1.5kg taking Jackall TN’s and 1/4oz Bassman Spinnerbaits.
Good customer Justan went to Lake Eppalock with some mates for a weekend trip, and after buying a few ‘must have’ lures from the boys, he did well on some large Redfin, while his mates struggled to get a fish. Needless to say he is hooked on spinning for the Reddies now.
Ryan also fished Eppalock during the week chasing Redfin, but instead managed Yellowbelly up to 44cm, all caught on Jackall Mask Vibes.
Lake Wendouree has been fishing well for Trout over the last week. Customer George gave us a report of excellent numbers of Brown Trout up to 1.2kg taking Mudeyes and Gulp! Crickets fished under a ‘AAA’ sliding float.
Piotr and his mates like to catch Eels around the Dandenong area in the creeks, and they say that lately the Eels have been going off over the last week with the hot weather. Using scrubworms as bait is very effective for Piotr, who likes to use the Eels for Gummy Shark bait.
Customer Michael fished the Yarra twice over the last week around the Warrandyte area chasing Murray Cod. Using large Scrubworms on a running sinker rig, he caught 2 Cod, with the biggest being around 40cm. Michael also caught 2 Macquarie Perch in the same stretch of water, which he released back into the river.
Lake Eildon has been a little bit quiet this week again with lots of boat traffic, but fishing early morning or late afternoon is the key. Customer Jamie followed this principle and caught 2 Murray Cod, one at 49cm, and the second at 62cm. Both fish took live yabbies fished with very little weight, fished off the main Eildon wall boat ramp.
